Located between the $60 million expansion of the federal courthouse and an amazing large scale riverfront development, Troy University's Montgomery Campus has seized the opportunity to be a major part of the renaissance of downtown Montgomery. Along with the Rosa Parks Library and Museum, the Montgomery Campus has created a beautiful campus plaza to serve as a gateway to The University. At the center of the plaza is a clock tower topped with a flame reminiscent of the University seal. New parking and a circular drive to the existing parking deck extensively landscaped, gives the campus a living organic feel.

In addition to the University's projects, downtown Montgomery in recent years has seen a boom in construction and renovation. The Retirement Systems of Alabama has built numerous new buildings, including a twenty-four story office tower. A recently constructed Greek Revival style Judicial Building and the renovated historic State Capitol building on Dexter Avenue add to the beauty of downtown. Along with all the new buildings have come parks, a baseball stadium, fountains, a reflecting pool, a child care center and entertainment venues. In addition, the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center boasts stunning architecture highlighted by modern amenities and a rooftop pool. and we cannot forget about the new Montgomery Performing Arts Center serving as the center for entertainment in downtown Montgomery, this state-of-the-art facility is large enough for first run Broadway shows, yet intimate enough for a wide variety of entertainment. A plan for a new Alabama Science Museum for Children is currently underway.
